"ton better than Staver"----He led a decent program (frequent playoff team) with some quality athletes to a 3 win season, and they struggled to score points all year long. He simply isn't a good QB right now. Athletic for sure, but he has never produced in game action.
I believe he also broke his ankle in their final game.
You missed my point, which is, he wants to stay in Florida. And USF is the closest college to him.... Thus him staying close to home... I know it isn't that much farther to Gainesville, but we already have a couple of QB's.. so does FSU.
His best bet is Miami or go back to USF.
And I am not sure of your point from the second quote... Do you believe that Staver is a better QB that Woulard?? I think I am going to disagree. Early on, Woulard was up there with the other QB's we pursued, but it ended really quick when he didn't get an offer (and eventually the jersey stomp)...The only reason Staver is committed is because we missed out on all the other QB's... Staver wasn't the first choice by a long shot. I think he has potential... But I don't think he is going to be an eventual starter.
The highly rated QB we get in 2014 will take on the reigns after Driskel.... So all this Woulard/Staver talk is a moot point anyways.
